Christine grew up drawing and painting in Redlands, California. She earned a bachelor of fine arts from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. She is a self employed artist who paints commissioned murals, portraits and oil paintings since 1999.

“I like the challenge of creating a work of art to fit on something other than the conventional rectangular canvas. It is fun to repurpose an old item, something that has signs of wear and a story behind it. I wanted to create a painting of natural objects that contrasts the machine made chrome hubcap, yet compliments its shape. ”Christine Coates
